If there’s one thing people like more than getting new smartphones/gadgets/toys, it’s finding out that their smartphone/gadget/toy is better than everyone else’s. It’s human nature, or maybe just our egos, but the desire to turn everything into a stick measuring contest has been in our blood for generations.
Well, if one of the sticks you want to measure is your flagship smartphone’s camera performance, this article is for you. You seemed to love our last camera comparison, so we’re doing it again, only this time there’s a twist.

The OnePlus 5 now comes in a new limited edition colour. If Slate Grey or Midnight Black isn’t your favourite colour, this flagship phone can be yours in Soft Gold.
The OnePlus 5 is kinda like a Ford Model T where in one period of time you can have it in any colour as long as it’s black. The flagship smartphone came in either Slate Grey or in Midnight Black which looked rather similar. If black or dark grey is not your cup of tea, OnePlus will be offering a new colour for the OnePlus 5 and it’s coming real soon.
Oh, man has the OnePlus 5 received a lot of hate. From benchmark cheating, all the way to sub-par camera performances that have led the public to call DxOMark’s credibility into question, OnePlus’ latest flagship hasn’t had the smoothest of launches.
But, while it’s easy to get caught up with all the hate, all the rage, and all the feelings of dissatisfaction surrounding this smartphone, a lot of people tend to forget one really, really important thing about this new flagship:
It’s a damn good smartphone.
OnePlus aims to step up its photography game with the OnePlus 5 and they have partnered with DxO for assistance in camera optimisation. Surprisingly, during its official launch, there was no mention of such partnership which by right it should be a big deal if they want to shout about photography.
That’s quite a contrast compared to HTC as they have boasted having the highest score on DxOMark Mobile during its HTC U11 unveiling. Finally, after several weeks after its launch, DxoMark has finally released its evaluation for the OnePlus 5 with a score of 87. That puts in on par with the Huawei P10, Sony Xperia XZ and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+.
Official distributor Brightstar Malaysia has announced that the OnePlus 5 will be finally hitting our shores on Saturday, 8 July onwards. This is the fastest release yet and Malaysians can get the OnePlus 5 in less than 3 weeks after its global announcement.
The OnePlus 5 is officially coming to Malaysia and now you can secure your unit before it goes on sale next week. Not only it comes with official warranty, it is also significantly cheaper than the import sets that were offered earlier.
UPDATE: OnePlus 5 official Malaysian sets are now available for pre-order.
That was fast! After the OnePlus 5 was announced a few days ago, official distributor Brightstar has announced that the new OnePlus 5 is coming to Malaysia very soon. This is probably the fastest roll out of a OnePlus product in Malaysia so far.
The OnePlus 5 features a dual-camera system which works similar to the iPhone 7 Plus and ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom. You have the main 16MP f/1.7 shooter that takes normal shots and a secondary 20MP f/2.6 camera with a telephoto lens.
UPDATE: OnePlus 5 units with official Brightstar Malaysia warranty are coming soon.
Just one day after the OnePlus 5 was launched internationally, you can already place your pre-orders for this brand new flagship device here in Malaysia. It will cost you a pretty penny, though.
